Sheer Ute

I based this off of the Ute pattern. I think I executed it wrong… :( The tie-collar shouldn’t have come all the way down to the front. Oh well, I like it. :) It’s done in a sheer blue-gray material that I got for really cheap, and top-stitched in pink to match these little pink dots inside of bigger ochre dots that are on the fabric. Oh yea— I LEARNED HOW TO USE A DOUBLE NEEDLE! OHHHH YYEEEEAAAA!!! I was excited about that. I also put French seams on all of the seams and edges. Double excited that I managed to do that without getting really frustrated. The bottom hem is a bit uneven, but I like the top better tucked into my pants/shorts/skirt anyway. I don’t usually wear sleeves this puffed at the top, but I don’t mind it here. Also, the buttons are a bit hard to work, because I haven’t mastered buttonhole-making yet.

Material Notes

I love affordable fabric. Long live the remnant section! Four of the buttons match. The top one is the same color, so it sort of matches…

    It looks great! I am thinking about making this too, but I noticed that it says you need 2.4m of fabric? I think this is a mistake? It sounds like a lot. I love your version :-)

    Your blouse came out really great. In fact, it is so great, I am encouraged to try it too! Thanks for sharing.
